Description

The Software Development Kit (SDK) for the OMAP-L138 is legacy software for the OMAP-L138. This kit is not recommended for new designs (NRND). Instead, please download the Multicore Software Development Kit (MCSDK). For more information on these software options, visit the OMAP-L138 Software & Hardware Comparison wiki page. See "Additional Information" for links.

The SDK provides a set of pre-tested system software components that enable OEMs to quickly develop applications based on the OMAP-L138 and related processors. These kits include the Linux kernel, boot-loader, middleware, device drivers, DSP software components, an application framework, as well as build tools. By making all the basic system software components immediately available, the kit allows developers to focus on their application code, where they can add the most differentiation. This software is free and does not require any run-time royalties. The SDK can be used with the following tools:

  • OMAP-L138/TMS320C6748 Evaluation Module (EVM) - **While supplies last**
  • OMAP-L138 Low-Cost Development Kit
